Building Information Modeling
The building life cycle in a complex and dynamic multi-stakeholder environment. Increasing the effectiveness of information with the aid of BIM at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
Our research is conducted to deepen the practical use of BIM. In the literature it is said that BIM is the new phenomenon that will improve multiple defects and problems within the construction sector. One of them is foreseeing the right information at the right place and time during the building life cycle.
The aim of the research is to investigate if it is possible to optimise the information flows and if the management process within the building life cycle can be improved with the aid of BIM. This research focuses on two aspects; the first one is the central and dynamic information administration aspect. The second one is the changes to management due to the implementation of this system.
The question to be asked is whether these theoretical statements are valid. To find an answer a division will be made within this research, the two topics are Information and Management. These two topics are investigated during a test case at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. Two optimal flowcharts will be generated and compared to give an answer to the main research question.
The results will be written down in a manual that describes the manner how to use BIM in the stated environment.
